“Zuzu’s petals!”

“That’s right! That’s right!”

If you think you can avoid this film then you don’t know how well made it is. There are some really dark moments before the final mountain of sugar.

I tend to watch these to see the world the film was made in. Look at the contemporary clothes, streets, accepted ways of life. It’s sometimes an eye-opener. See something of that in the small town shown here.

Anyway, it’s a good film meant for the final pay-off but still good fun up to that point. Very good vehicle for James’ style and the concept of a world without you. Don’t be fooled by anyone saying it’s just an old movie, either, as it could have been made yesterday.

If it was in the theatre I’d go and see it. Once of those classic moments I’d love to see in the big screen.

 

Keep DVD?
No. That would spoil the surprise.

Watch if on TV?
Yes. Not too many time though.

Snog, Marry, Avoid, Hug?
Marry once it realises how much it was missed!
